Roland and CGS Publishing Technologies International Announce Strategic Technology Partnership.

IRVINE, Calif. -- Roland and CGS Publishing Technologies International have entered into a strategic partnership to bring leading edge technologies to the graphics industry.

Focused initially on the packaging market, the partnership has produced a new solution that seamlessly integrates CGS' patented ORIS Color Tuner // Web software with Roland's DPI award-winning VersaUV LED-UV inkjet printer/cutter. The solution allows businesses to generate highly accurate flexible packaging contract halftone proofs on virtually any substrate at a fraction of the cost of current laser systems.

"For nearly three decades, Roland has brought innovative technologies to creative professionals," said Trevor Haworth, CEO of CGS Publishing Technologies. "Our new combined solution has already been widely adopted in Japan, delivering new levels of productivity, cost efficiency and quality to businesses there."

The 30" VersaUV LEC-330 prints on an unprecedented range of substrates and features Roland's renowned print/cut technology which enables precision printing and contour cutting of graphics all on one device through one seamless workflow. In addition to CMYK and white inks, VersaUV prints clear coat which can be layered to create gloss and matte finishes, unique textures and special effects. Roland ECO-UV inks offer an expansive color gamut and remain flexible to support the production of packaging samples.

CGS ORIS Color Tuner // Web software includes a new driver supporting VersaUV's entire color gamut. The ORIS ScreenDot feature directly processes 1-Bit imagesetter-data, producing perfectly accurate color halftone proofs. The original screening information allows users to detect screening-related problems such as moires and artifacts at a very early stage, avoiding costly remakes. The ORIS ScreenDot Plus feature allows users to produce halftone proofs, even without final 1-Bit data.

"CGS has set the standard for color management across the graphics industry," said Rick Scrimger, vice president and general manager for Roland DGA. "We are certain that our efforts will lead to new solutions for applications such as large format printing and display graphics. We are working with CGS on integrating the ORIS solution with other Roland inkjets including the VersaCAMM VS-640 64" 8-color printer/cutter featuring white and metallic silver inks. We look forward to the opportunities ahead."
